been a big hit in london "evita" here had bad reviews. the mood changed. funny enough, i think that's an intriguing one because in the late '70s america was a little bit in denial about talking about anything political. i mean, you remember the time, after vietnam, and i remember writing the early days of the "evita" run we hit the -- at the same time of the russian invasion of afghanistan, which i don't think anybody really completely understood what was going on. i have just read a really, really great book about afghanistan, so forgive me for talk about afghanistan. i've gone off on a tangent. >> another time. >> suddenly people started talking about politics again. they said, maybe paralleled with what we were trying to say there was an interesting subject. >> how much have the critics gotten to you over the years? >> i don't really care very much if i don't think the critics really understand music. >> somebody that you respect, what is the most hurtful kind of thing they could say that would really get to you? >> i guess somebody who i did respect as a musician said that the s

the next big question when casey is released where she's going to go. did mason give any hint about that? >> he said plans were being made. he would not tell me what they were. but he is concerned for her safety. they all are. they do realize the public opinion in this nation deems casey anthony maybe one of the most hated women in america right now. so they are taking security precautions for her safety. >> i want to play some of what he said about their fears for her safety. let's listen. >> sure. yeah. everybody around her knows we have to be concerned for her safety. there's a lot of nuts out there that don't believe in the constitution of the united states, don't believe in the jury system. all you have to do is go downstairs on the sidewalk and you'll see. >> he wouldn't say, though, what precautions they're taking to ensure her safety, right? >> no. he wouldn't even tell me where she's going to go. he does not think she can live in orlando, florida or even the state of florida, and wonders where in the united she can become anonymous and just sort of blend into the society. he had
have budget sate h savings of $500 million. -- $500 billion. also it calls for big changes to medicare and social security. >> i think at the end of the day, what the overwhelming majority of americans are saying, fix this. and if it takes a little compromise from both. >> but the is plan faces a harsh reality. tough procedural obstacles means the proposal won't be ready ahead of the august 2 debt ceiling deadline. and a key block of conservatives is already saying no way. >> we know it's going to hurt job creation. we know it's bad for small businesses. we're not going to go for this type of plan. >> with time running out, harry reid, who is still work on a fall back plan with mitch mcconnell says he's now waiting for a signal from house gop leaders. >> we have a plan to go forward over here, but until we hear from the house of representatives, we really are -- all of our work here would be for not. >> now there is also talk of folding elements of the gang of six plan into this so-called fallback plan being worked out between senators reid and senator mitch mcconnell. but it's not eve
reform. it is quite a big undertaking considering there isn't a lot of time left but certainly some movement that we have seen since yesterday, guy. >> any specifics? i think important people who are listening to the process of what's happening in washington, what this means for people over a longer period of time is fewer services and smaller government and maybe higher taxes or higher cost of living your life as the services go away. i mean, all of these have amazing and long lasting ramifications for how we live our lives. my specifics? >> huge long -- no. honestly in terms of the specific, i mean, we can talk generally about where the cuts would come from, entitlements, defense spending, you can see how that would affect different people and the nation as a whole. specifics, no, i think we are going to be getting, obviously, more details on that to come. let's just take a look at some of the things that some of the folks who are coming here to the white house are going to demand because, remember, president obama is hosting eight members of congress, top two democrats and top tw

that and in exchange for some minor tweaking of medicare, but nothing that really gives the republicans too big a win on that issue. and they would also argue, to gloria's point earlier, that you actually need this. this is not just a win for democrats, you need it because you need democratic votes to get this through because you're going to lose so many republicans who simply won't vote to extend the debt ceiling under any circumstances. so that's the calculus if you went with the middle deal, there would be an entirely different math for a tax reform package if you went with that larger deal that's more in the $4 trillion range. >> the irony here to me is that a larger deal would in many ways be easier to cut because it's so obvious what you would have to do. if you do a smaller deal, then you have to have eric cantor lay out by piece by piece by piece, cut by cut, by cut, what he would do if you don't have the revenue side of it. >> but to get the bigger deal, you need trust that they would actually then do comprehensive tax reform, rewrite the code so the republicans would make the case we didn't

no sizable progress to report on moving forward on a big deficit reduction plan that includes massive spending cuts, tax reform and entitlement reform, tax increases. so you can see here the clock is ticking and the end game here still very unclear. >> this thing just keeps on developing and you hear hopefulness and then schedules. you will keep us posted when you hear there's actually some kind of timeline we have to figure out whether we are going to have money to pay our bills on august 3rd or not. >> after two days of explosive hearings in the uk phone hacking scandal, relatives of 9/11 victims in the u.s. are now saying they will be meeting with attorney general eric holder soon. they asked for the meeting one-on-one since the fbi started investigating allegations that "news of the world" hacked the phones of survivors, victims and their families. the meeting has yet yet been set. >>> rupert murdoch is back in the united states. he and his wife returned to their new york home yesterday. there is a lot on rupert murdoch's plate. news corp. is facing an fbi investigation and at lea

, this backup plan could be left as the last option standing. but the big question is always, wolf, will it pass the house? can it pass the house? and this seems to be another example of just how divided the republican party is on this issue. >> yeah, it's a huge, huge division right now. going forward, this debate, we'll see what happens. kate, thanks very much. let's check in with jack right now. he's got the "cafferty file." >> despite that nasty game of chicken going on in washington over raising the debt ceiling. congressional leaders in both parties pretty much agree that doing it is going to be necessary. the argument is over what else goes into the bill that's tying them up and bringing the country dangerously close to defaulting on some of our loans. according to a new poll, 40% do not want the debt ceiling raised and they want their members of congress to vote against any measures that raise it. only 22% want their lawmakers to vote for raising the debt ceiling. and more than 1/3 of americans say they're just not sure. when asked which is a greater concern, 51% say raising the debt cei

with the details. the president is talking and they are hoping for a big grand bargain. what is your sense? >> reporter: well, they have to get one done. so it's sort of the opposite of a cliff hanger. we know how it will end. the question is how do they get there from here? the big question first of all that i can report is that the president told congressional leaders that under no terms will he sign a short-term deal. he is not going to accept anything other than something that raises the debt ceiling through 2012 and that is flat out a promise. he was unequivocal. beyond that, the question over the next few days is, how do they get to this negotiation and all eyes are on john boehner, speaker boehner is the man who has to explain to them where he can get the votes, what it would take for them to deliver. and they are really looking to him. all the negotiators, to explain what the deal would look like for them to get on board with that. >> let's look at the tough choices that they have to make. if you have a grand deal, you have to have a number of things. maybe social security means if

"in the arena" starts right now. >>> good evening and welcome. i'm tom foreman. tonight we are getting mixed signals about a possible back room deal on the debt ceiling just hours away from what president obama at least at one point called a deadline for a decision. "the new york times" says president obama and the republican speaker of the house john boehner are close to an agreement. roughly it would involve $3 trillion in cuts and an eventual overhaul of the entire tax system. here's the catch, though. other sources are shooting down the idea that this is even happening as fast and hard as they can. listen to boehner himself earlier today on rush limbaugh's radio show. >> rush, there is no deal. no deal publicly, no deal privately. there is absolutely no deal. >> no deal, no deal, no deal. now, here's the white house spokesman jay carney. >> there is no deal. we are not close to a deal. we are -- obviously, the president is in discussions with all the leaders of congress as well as other members

a big bite mark. >> is that a valid excuse? that maybe some staffer read it? she didn't read the whole thing? >> i find that mind-boggling. such a statement would scream out to you as just incredibly wrong. that you cannot -- if you are a first-year student in high school and you read that statement, that's got to send up some alarms to you that says -- wait a minute. we can't sign this sort of thing. and particularly, not so much probably in the republican primary. if she does get into the general election, this sort of thing with independent voters just kills you dead. it's a nonstarter because it's such a fringe sort of way of thinking of things. >> it's also interesting that -- >> i would say that's probably why they didn't look at it. because i agree with you. had i read this and any of the republicans i talked to, they would say -- what the heck is this? don't sign that. i just think someone wasn't paying attention when they were doing their job. >> even in the explanation this group has put out, where they retracted it, they did the classic -- this can be -- i'm sorry if you mis

. and i guess, obviously, because it's a country of immigrants, it becomes this big thing. but from your perspective, what would you do? how would you fix things? >> that's a loaded question. it's a big question too. and i think there's so much misinformation out there, and i will immediately disclaim that i am not the expert in this field. although i am pretty literate. i'm pretty literate in this particular issue, because of people that are in my life and my mentors and people that i surround myself, because i really want to understand what the problem is. the majority of latinos in america are american, and i think that we forget that we are trying to categorize every mexican or every mexican american as illegal or undocumented, and that is just not true. nobody wants illegal immigration. what happened in arizona, i think, created a dialogue that we needed to have. and for immigration, it's been on the administration -- on the agenda for the past three administrations. so people like to blame obama and they're going to blame a lot of people for it -- >> well, there's this huge expecta
